Florg Dizzy Spell would definitely be useful as another way to tutor for high tide. Especially since I only have two tutors for it right now, which isnt enough for such a key part of my deck. My main concern is that it is useless by itself, and figuring out what to cut for it.

I really like Reality Spasm, I thought my high tide package was a little lean so I am psyched to add that in.

The Isochron Scepter and Dramatic Reversal combo was something that I seriously considered putting it. I decided against it for two reasons, I wanted to keep the power level tuned a little bit lower and it doesnt seem that fun to me. If I realize that I need to increase the power level I will for sure add that combo in. I think I might add Isochron Scepter in anyways because I have a lot of power in the 1/2 drop instants and pairing it with high tide itself would be bomb.

Mind's Desire was one of the last things I cut. I am still very much debating it. Thought it might be too expensive, and since I exile them they wont get the rebound trigger. I think I might be being too critical and I should do some testing on it.

I am hopping i have enough card draw that I won't needEnter the Infinite, and it is so expensive that by the time I can catch I think I should already be able to win.

I love me some Recurring Insight. Great card that draws tons of cards. I dont think it is the greatest fit for this deck because rebound does not stack. So I should be able to get more value for cheaper on other draw spells due to Taigams rebound.

I also added Dream Halls to the deck. Time to figure out what to cut!

Dizzy Spell lets you tutor for high tide. Reality Spasm is another good way to untap your lands. Sculpting Steel seems like it would be nice to copy a mana rock or Aetherflux Reservoir.

The Isochron Scepter and Dramatic Reversal combo is also great for getting infinite mana and storm count which makes winning easy. On that note Mind's Desire would be another good way to win the game.

Enter the Infinite and Recurring Insight are two of the best draw spells for decks like this. It's easier to storm off with a lot of cards in your hand!

dbpunk, Natural Order seems to be an ideal choice for a green magus, but Hallowed Burial, however, is a much more recent card, so does not fit the theme of these cycles by referencing older cards. Mind's Desire is an interesting choice, because it is at its best only if many other spells have been cast before it, so I wonder how WotC shall replicate the storm effect for an activated ability.

They announced a blue Magus, its based on Mind's Desire. Also, like both your guys are way over costed compared to Magus of the Will and Magus of the Will. You gotta aim for bigger spells than super common spells like Swords to Plowshares and Ancestral Recall (which, while powerful, can be pretty much done with any number of creatures for the mana cost/ability cost of your creature).

@Archwizard: I see. Well, is he at least useful for stuff regarding deck boxes, sleeves, etc? I plan to run Enter the Infinite, Omniscience, Beacon of Tomorrows chronolock, even two equipment that works especially well on an emergency commander damage ordeal. I don't suppose the 30 lands of choice need to have basics? We do have Ruination you know... ;). Though I am considering Mind's Desire as a last ditch effort to win a game; But wouldn't just 30 lands merely mean mana starvation? This I actually want answered as this is going to be tough to make IF I include ABU Duals... Oh, and Eye of the Storm seems promising...

Thanks jason31502!

In terms of Grixis colors for EDH, Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge and Marchesa, the Black Rose are interesting commanders. Jeleva for playing opponents deck and Marchesa for nasty ETB and LTB triggers. Also you might try Vial Smasher the Fierce & Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist, however Smasher got expensive.

I might think about Mind's Desire or Grapeshot to play them off Epic Experiment. Too bad this deck is too good for my playgroup and adding more power might actually paint that "big red target" on my forehead.

i really like this deck. +1 from me. i dont play EDH, but i want to, how fun is it? do you know any GOOD budget builds that incorporate my favorite colors, Blue, red, and black, in that order are my favorite to play. I was thinking about narset or nekusar for a while but narsets expensive for what i want to do, and i dont like the idea of sitting there playing wheel spells and draw cards all day, i dont care if it ALWAYS wins or not, but i want to have fun... and maybe crush a few souls along the way. anyways, i love how you put the card quotes, it actually made your deck interesting to look at. have you thought of any storm cards like Mind's Desire or Temporal Fissure or even the classical Empty the Warrens and Grapeshot. since you have thngs to net you a ton of plays, whether by mana or the broken epic expiriment.
